ARA is seeking a Principal Scientist or Engineer to be part of our team in Littleton, Colorado. Standout candidates will have experience in one or more of these areas: Hypersonics (offensive and defensive); Reverse Engineering; Directed Energy; Less-than-lethal Technologies; Space (offensive and defensive); Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear Defense; Additive/Advanced Manufacturing Technology; Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) and Materials; and Advanced Sensors Development. Our Littleton office supports a variety of U.S. Department of Defense and commercial customers in electromechanical systems integration, hearing protection research, terminal ballistics, thermal protective systems, tactical equipment development, and chemical and biological sensing. A successful candidate will have a technical background in a related area and the willingness to grow that area within the company. As a Principal Scientist or Engineer you will be expected to develop and lead a new business area or enhance an existing area. You will work with other principals, management, and business developers to understand customer needs in your business area and develop a business capture plan to execute. You will develop creative solutions to difficult problems for which no single commercial solution exists and submit those in the form of white papers and proposals. Candidates should be prepared to discuss their technical or business development portfolio performing contract research or leading Government research activities. This position requires travel to conduct meetings, demonstrations, and general marketing activities. At ARA, employees are our greatest assets. The corporation realizes that employee ownership generates greater creativity and initiative along with higher performance and customer satisfaction levels. ARA gives its employees the tools, training, and opportunities to take more active roles as employee-owners. The culture is challenging; innovation and experimentation are the norms. Employees are eligible for contributions, which not only add to the company’s success but also the employee’s own Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).
